PLAN E has worked closely the indigenous staff of ECU’s Kurongkurl Katitjin, to achieve landscape designs that reflect unique traditional Aboriginal concepts. Through the considered composition of the designs with complimentary endemic plantings, the resulting landscapes create sculptural spaces that complement and enhance the campus setting.

The 14 timber totems pictured are jarrah logs cut open to form an abstract book, with one of the 14 Noongar language groups etched on one side. The opposite side of the jarrah log was to be carved and engraved by the local language group community that the totem represents, these have finally been transported to the local communities for the carvings and are now installed back on site at ECU Joondalup.

These amazing carvings show the diversity of the different language groups and communities in WA’s South West.

PLAN E has completed five RAP projects at the ECU JoondalupCampus and one for ECU Bunbury

a landscape design that reflects the unique traditional Aboriginal concept of Welcome to Place by invoking the cleansing symbolism of the smoking ceremony.
